Coombe Hill and Ashleworth (10 May 2011, contributed by Mike Smart and Les Brown)
There was a flock of 12 Whimbrel feeding quietly in long grass quite difficult to see as they were very discreet and rarely calledseem to have been present for a couple of days. Looks as though many breeding Lapwing and Oystercatcher have been predated and are trying second clutches. A Grasshopper Warbler singing on the reserve at the west end. At Wainlodes end a hunting hobby and a Little Egret; at least one Redstart singing in windy conditions.
Over Ashleworth another (or the same) hunting Hobby.
